The remarks of Senator Smith of Guilford are as follows: 

"Could I ask one more question? Would you state as the intention of the 
bill that this present bill would in no way relieve, but would in fact expect 
there to be a sales tax collection on drinks with alcohol content above 
twenty-one percent? 

"This amendment is directed to $10.00 a gallon tax, but it does tie in with 
other forms of taxes on mixed drinks and in case there is an ambiguity or 
a question, I would hope that the Journal would show that it was the intent 
of the sponsors of the bill and of the Senate in ratifying this particular 
amendment and permitting the bill to become law that there would be no 
escape from the sales tax for 'stiff' drinks and if there is any problem, 
certainly between now and January, it could be cleared up."

SENATE RESOLUTION 

SECOND SESSION 1978 

June 15, 1978 

S. R. 1029, A SENATE RESOLUTION CALLING FOR CONSIDERATION 
BY THE LEGISLATIVE RESEARCH COMMISSIONS SUBCOM- 
MITTEE ON REVENUE LAWS OF INCOME TAX REDUCTION BY 
UPWARD REVISION OF TAX BRACKETS. 

Whereas, the income tax rates and brackets in North Carolina have not 
been revised since they were adopted in 1939; and 

Whereas, inflation has created automatic tax increases each year for 
North Carolinians who receive pay increases without substantial increases 
in purchasing power, yet find themselves in a higher tax bracket; and 

Whereas, inflation during the past eight years alone at six percent (6%) 
per year amounts to some forty-eight percent (48%), and whereas an 
increase by fifty percent (50%) in each of the income tax brackets would 
have the effect of offsetting the higher tax rates resulting from inflation 
during the past eight years; and 

Whereas, the Senate Finance Committee has considered Senate Bill 955, 
An Act to Amend the Income Levels Against Which the Individual Income 
Tax Rates Are Applied, and considers the bill to have considerable merit 
for future enactment; and 

Whereas, a major revision of North Carolina's tax laws is being con- 
sidered by the Legislative Research Commission's Subcommittee on Revenue 
Laws to give consideration to S. B. 955 as a desirable approach toward 
income tax reform; 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Senate : 

Section 1. That S. B. 955, An Act to Amend the Income Levels Against 
Which the Individual Income Tax Rates Are Applied should be and is hereby 
transmitted to the Legislative Research Commission's Subcommittee on 
Revenue Laws for its consideration in recommending income tax reform 
measures to be recommended to the 1979 General Assembly. 

Sec. 2. This resolution is effective upon adoption.

ALLOCATION OF FUNDS TO LOCAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE 
UNITS ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA. 

STUDY COMMISSION REPORT 

RESOLUTION 91 (1977 SESSION LAWS) 

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

OFFICE OF THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR 

RALEIGH 

June 14, 1978 

Members 

North Carolina Senate 
State Legislative Building 
Raleigh, North Carolina 27611 

Fellow Members of the Senate: 

I am pleased to transmit herewith the report of the commission estab- 
lished by Resolution 91 of the 1977 General Assembly. 

Chaired by Representative G. Malcolm Fulcher, Jr., of Carteret (Sen. 
Vernon E. White, Vice Chairman), the commission conducted an extensive 
study of the formulae and procedures which determine the allocations of 
funds to local school administrative units across North Carolina. As directed 
by Resolution 91, the commission now submits its findings and recommenda- 
tion to the General Assembly, Second Session 1978. 

This report has been adopted unanimously by the State Board of Educa- 
tion and has received widespread support from the public and the media. 

It addresses the issues of equity of funds, pupil-teacher ratios and pro- 
gram costs, making a number of significant recommendations. The report 
constitutes a blueprint for public school funding over the next seven to 
eight years. 

It should be noted that the cost estimates given in the report are not 
precise and in all likelihood will prove to be high. They do not take into 
account certain non-state resources, including federal funding in some areas. 
As a further example, one of the report's recommendations — a reduction 
in junior high school class size — is being implemented during the current 
legislative session. 

The study commission has performed its task diligently and well, pro- 
ducing a program of action which could materially improve the quality of 
public schooling in North Carolina. I commend it to you for your thoughtful 
consideration. 

Sincerely, 
Jimmy Green 
Lieutenant Governor

1472 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

June 16, 1978 

REMARKS OF SENATOR ROGER SHARPE RISING TO A POINT OF 
PERSONAL PRIVILEGE. 

Mr. President, since this was my last day to serve in the North Carolina 
Senate, I want to take the opportunity to make a few comments to you and 
to share with you my appreciation for what you have taught me over the 
past couple of years. And, as we celebrated in the Love Feast the other 
evening, I looked around and looked at you who have been my colleagues 
and what I'd learned from you. I wanted to share with you particularly 
something that I learned from the distinguished Senator from Halifax 
County, Senator Allsbrook. In that about a year ago at a reception, Senator 
Allsbrook came up to me, and put his arm around me and said to me, 
"Roger, you know I love you like a son," and I said, "Yes, I know that," 
and he said, "I want to know why you always vote against me." 

In that conversation and subsequent conversations, Senator Allsbrook 
taught me the value of leaving behind one's personal feelings when we 
walk out the Chamber door after we debate vigorously the many bills 
that have come up before us. He suggested to me. that the next day is a 
new day and that a Senator who may have spoken against your bill or voted 
against you the day before may be with you on today's vote or tomorrow's 
vote. 

With that in mind, I want to speak to you very briefly about a concern 
that I have had this Session, and particularly what's happening here in 
North Carolina. And, that is to share with you a specific concern that I 
have and a particular viewpoint that may differ from that of yours on what 
a remedy should be, or what even the degree and magnitude of the problem is. 

On June 2, I introduced in the Senate — Bill 1002, which would have 
provided nearly six million dollars to strengthen learning laboratories, 
tutorial programs, adult education, and other affirmative action programs 
in the community college and technical institute system here in North 
Carolina. This requested appropriation was less than half the 12.9 million 
which was proposed by the State Board of Education in the timetable sup- 
plemental to the information of The Revised North Carolina State Plan for 
the Further Elimination of Racial Duality in the Public Higher Education 
Systems, Phase II, 1978 to 1983. This plan was approved by the federal 
Department of Health, Education and Welfare in 1978. The funding for the 
affirmative action program in the community college system was requested 
as a special item before the Advisory Budget Commission, but did not pass. 

Let me recount very briefly to you the major dates in the nine year 
struggle that we have had here in North Carolina over desegregation of 
higher education in this State. In 1969, a coalition of civil rights groups 
complained to the HEW Office for Civil Rights that ten states, including 
North Carolina, were operating racially dual systems. In 1970, the civil 
rights group, led by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, sued HEW for 
failing to enforce Title Six of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That act states 
the following: "No person in the United States shall on the ground of race, 
color or national origin be excluded from participation in or be denied the 



1978] SENATE JOURNAL 1473 

benefit of or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity 
that is federally financed." 

In 1973, the United States District Court Judge, John H. Pratt, ruled in 
favor of the civil rights groups, ordered HEW to begin enforcing Title Six. 
The University of North Carolina Board of Governors submitted separate 
desegregation plans for the university and the community college systems. 
HEW rejected both plans on the grounds that they were too narrow. In 1974, 
HEW accepted a new plan from the University of North Carolina Board 
of Governors. In 1976, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund returned to court to 
challenge the desegregation plan of North Carolina and five other southern 
states. In April, 1977, Judge Pratt agreed that the plans were inadequate 
and ordered HEW to issue more specific criteria. 

In July, 1977, HEW issued criteria calling for greater Black enrollment 
in traditionally White institutions and the enhancement of traditionally 
Black institutions. In August 1977, The University of North Carolina Board 
of Governors adopted another plan and presented that plan to the Depart- 
ment of HEW. In November, 1977, HEW asked for clarification of the plan. 
In December, 1977, the University Board submitted two supplements to the 
August desegregation plan. 

In February, 1978, HEW approved North Carolina's plan for desegregat- 
ing the community college system, but it said that the university plan for 
North Carolina was inadequate. In March, 1978, HEW approved other state 
plans but did not accept that of North Carolina. The Agency began pro- 
ceedings to cut off federal funds from the University of North Carolina 
system and at that time the intense negotiations began. On May 12, 1978, 
agreement was reached between HEW and the University of North Caro- 
lina Board of Governors, as you know. That document, on which an agree- 
ment was reached on May 12, was called The Revised North Carolina State 
Plan for the Further Elimination of Racial Duality in Public Higher Edu- 
cation Systems, Phase II, Supplement II. 

In the document key points are, the University promised the following: 
first, to submit a proposal by February, 1979, for increasing the enrollment 
of Black graduate students; secondly, to offer a variety of new degrees and 
graduate programs at the five traditionally Black institutions; thirdly, to 
equalize the salaries of Black faculty members with those of White in the 
next five years; fourthly, to attempt to increase enrollment of Black fresh- 
men in White colleges by 150 percent over the next four years, bringing the 
number of Blacks in the freshmen classes from the current 950 a year to 
2360 by 1982. This fourth point had long been a sticking point in negotiations 
with the University of North Carolina, arguing that such a move might 
lower the educational standards in its flagship institutions. The fifth point 
called for the State to begin this summer a review of the relationship of 
undergraduate and master programs at most of the institutions so that 
program duplications on traditionally Black and traditionally White institu- 
tions might be eliminated. This particular study is to be completed by this 
December and the findings are to be sent to HEW along with the racial 
impact statement for any program changes designed to eliminate duplica- 
tion. In supplemental statements to The Revised North Carolina State Plan, 



1474 SENATE JOURNAL [Session 

with particular references to the community colleges and technical insti- 
tute system, the State of North Carolina made written commitments to the 
Department of HEW, accepted in good faith by HEW officials, that we would 
make substantial progress in accomplishing the goals outlined in Phase II of 
the revised plan. The date by which affirmative action plans of the local 
institutions were to have been submitted to the Office for Civil Rights was 
June 1, 1978. 

The Advisory Budget Commission, as I have stated earlier, did not 
recommend the appropriation of funds to the 1978 Session of this General 
Assembly as was requested by the State Board of Education to help obtain 
those commitments in Phase II. Therefore, it is doubtful that the following 
activities addressed by that Senate Bill cannot be obtainable in the com- 
munity college system — first of all, hiring recruiters to increase the number 
of black students; secondly, providing additional programs and tutorial 
assistance to all those who needed help; thirdly, hiring transfer counselors 
to help produce the rate in which "Black and White students complete and 
graduate from public institutions; and fourth, the transferring from the 
community college system to the university system. In The Supplemental 
Statement to the Revised North Carolina State Plan, we made a specific 
commitment that we would offer a variety of attractive new degree and 
graduate programs at the traditionally five Black universities in North 
Carolina. 

With this Body the other day, I voted with the majority to approve the 
Veterinary School that's to be constructed at North Carolina State Univer- 
sity at an additional cost of the first phase of the construction plan of 7.2 
millions of dollars — and, we are only spending 40 thousand dollars in the 
preveterinary program at North Carolina A & T University in Greensboro. 
This, in my opinion, is not exactly quid pro quo. Furthermore, it is a viola- 
tion of the agreement approved in good faith and could possibly subject our 
institutions to a cut-off in millions of dollars in federal funds by HEW, as 
well as by court action by the interested parties. 

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Senate, I believe in North Carolina and the 
good will of her people. I support wholeheartedly its image of progressive 
moderation. Section 5 of the North Carolina Constitution is that the 
people have the right and privilege of education and it is the duty of the 
State to guard and maintain that right. Section 1, of the same Constitution 
establishes the equality and rights of all persons. At a time in recent 
months when North Carolina's image on a national and international level 
has been affected by the JoAnn Little case, by the Wilmington Ten case, 
the J. P. Stevens labor dispute and by Senator "No's" term in the United 
States Senate in Washington, I am quite concerned that our image of good 
will may, too, be affected by what we do in relationship to our commitment 
to eliminate racial duality in the public school ssytems of higher education 
in North Carolina. 

I encourage each of us to become more informed about the commitments 
we have made to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare on our 



1978] SENATE JOURNAL 1475 

public systems, to know what commitments we have made in good faith to 
them and that have been received in good faith, and that we may respond 
accordingly in future appropriations. 

Thank you, Mr. President. 



June 16, 1978 

H. B. 1656 
Senate Substitute 

ADDRESS BY THE HONORABLE JAMES C. GREEN, 
PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE 

House Bill 1656 was introduced to re-enact the checkoff bill passed by the 
General Assembly in 1975, which has a "sunset" provision as of December 
31, 1977. The 1975 legislation, although it implicitly was for the substantial 
benefit of statewide candidates for public office and congressmen who had 
opposition in the General Election, did not mandate that the funds be 
disbursed to these candidates. 

The 1975 legislation was sponsored in the House at the urging of the then 
Chairman of the Democratic Party, and with my considerable blessing. The 
legislation was sold to the members of the General Assembly by that Party 
chairman with the assurance that the vast majority of this money would be 
disbursed to the candidates, and that a relatively small portion of any of 
these funds would be utilized and needed to maintain State Party head- 
quarters. 

Although $134,000 has been received by the Democratic Party under that 
law, and there is approximately $210,000 which will be disbursed to the 
Democratic Party by August 2, 1978, I do not believe that any statewide 
candidate in the Democratic Party has ever received one dollar of this 
money. 

Although I agreed with the Governor that this matter should be of 
sufficient importance to be taken up by the General Assembly this Session, 
I very much disagreed with him concerning the allocation and distribution 
of the funds received under the old law. With considerable urging on my 
part, Senate Committee Substitute for House Committee Substitute for 
House Bill 1656 is before the Senate. If this bill is passed, the candidates in 
the General Election this fall can be assured of some of these funds. 

In addition, in the future, candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, 
Council of State, United States Senate, United States Congress, and the 
North Carolina Supreme Court and the North Carolina Court of Appeals, 
who have opposition in the General Election, can be assured of receiving 
directly at least fifty percent of the funds generated by this checkoff bill.
